Talk about a long hiatus!
A few days ago, I sat down to go over things I wanted to accomplish this summer. I wrote down anything I could think of — from deadlines for my research projects, trips, and cleaning my apartment to getting into a solid exercise routine. And I wrote “start actively updating the blog again.” It’s honestly been incredibly hard to remind myself to keep writing, especially those times that I just don’t feel like I have anything interesting to say. Which has turned out to be most of the time… haha. But I’m going to overcome that and make a legitimate attempt at doing this, for real!
Picking up writing again is convenient for me now that summer has started, and mine is looking pretty dull. Quiet, at least. Besides some really exciting happenings in June (my friends from Sweden visiting and then travelling home to Sweden for a week!), my summer will be spent not doing much besides working my part-time job and doing research for my master’s thesis project. So I expect July and August to be filled with much time to do things for myself, which actually feels quite nice.
So much has happened since I started “forgetting” to blog about 8 months ago — innumerous papers written, several great trips taken, lots of delicious food cooked, and some exciting edits made to my apartment decor. I can’t wait to write more about it all in the next posts!
